Movie Review: Onward, directed by Dan Scanlon
“I am a mighty warrior.”
Here’s the trick: instead of the hero’s quest, how ‘bout a fantasy which plays by the rules of a fantasy role-playing game?
“You can’t spend your whole life playing board games.”
Great concept—semi-autobiographical, at that—great vocal talent; great art. The computer-generated scenes are incredible. Compare it with Toy Story 1.
“On a quest, you use what you’ve got, and we’ve got this”
What could go wrong? Cartoonish. Feels like a made-for-direct-release video. (Think Aladdin 2: The Return of Jafar.)
“Whoever said you have to take risks in life to have an adventure?” “Apparently, you did.”
